301, 311 Series Pull Action Latch Clamps

Destaco 301, 311 Series pull action latch clamps are designed for securing & molding closures for lids, doors & covers and also for assembling applications in the automotive, aerospace and food & packaging industries. These pull action latch clamps provide a stationary alternative to removable C clamps or spring clamps while securing material to the work surface and holding them in place using a lever handle that is pushed to the upright position when the clamp is engaged & pressed down to reach the locked position, ensuring quick and fatigue less clamping operations. These pull action latch clamps have a patented thumb control lever for single handed operation. These Destaco 301, 311 Series clamps feature a fixed stop that automatically limits handle movement at different clamping positions, and are made of steel / stainless steel for resisting corrosion on exposed surfaces. These pull action latch clamps have a flanged base with threaded holes, allowing the unit to be mounted to a worktable or flat surface. They depend on 3 main components - a base for attaching the clamp to the surface, a clamping arm for contact point between the work item & clamp and a handle for operating the tool. Once the simple linkage system of the clamp is put in the over centre position, the handle is pulled horizontally / vertically to create force parallel to the base and squeeze holding the items.

227 Series Horizontal Hold Down Clamps

Destaco 227 Series horizontal hold down clamps or horizontal handle toggle clamps are designed for holding workpieces in place using a horizontal lever handle that lays flat when the clamp is engaged. They offer a stationary alternative to removable clamps when performing repetitive tasks in the aerospace, automotive and food & packaging industries. These units feature a low profile design for light duty clamping applications in tight spaces, such as assembling, closure, fixture checking and woodworking applications. Destaco hold down toggle locking clamps are made of steel or stainless steel to provide rigidity and corrosion resistance. They have open or U shaped bars for easy attachment of arm extensions, and flanged or straight base mounting styles for ease of installation. These units offer large hand clearance in the open position (up to 56 degrees) and feature neoprene or stainless steel hex head spindles (some models) for maximum holding force. Destaco 227 Series horizontal handle toggle clamps come with a handle, a lever system and a securing bar that prevent the movement of the workpieces. The lever system applies enough pressure on the object to keep the workpiece steady. These clamps also have a linkage system that applies powerful clamping force with minimum effort to lock or unlock the clamp. Additionally, these Destaco horizontal clamps are capable of handling loads up to 600 lb and are suitable with flanged washers (to provide secure connection against vibration), cross arm sets and M6 or 5/16 inch spindles for high performance workholding, automation and containment solutions.

323, 331, 341 Series Pull Action Latch Clamps

Destaco 323, 331, 341 Series pull action latch clamps are designed for quick clamping of doors, lids or access covers onto drums / containers / vessels. They have holding capacity ranging between 360 & 2000 lb and feature a flanged base. Some models are equipped with Destaco Toggle Lock Plus safety mechanism that acts as a secondary locking system. They are also supplied with a latch plate and a thumb control lever for flexible single handed operation. Stainless steel versions are available as -SS models. These units are available in lengths ranging from 6 to 12.8 inches.
Destaco also offers these clamps with longer hooks (models ending with -M-25, -M-50, or -M-100) that are 25, 50 or 100 mm longer than the standard length. These pull action latch clamps work similarly to latch on fishing tackle boxes. They are equipped with a handle that is appropriately aligned with the opposing latch. The handle can be pulled back down into the locking position, making it ideal for closing objects such as mold closures and latching doors. Destaco 323, 331, 341 Series pull action latch clamps apply the force in a direct, straight-line direction that allows the unit to toggle in the forward and the rear position. This is particularly useful in situations where the operator occasionally requires the clamp, rather than to push forward and apply the force, to pull forward and apply the force. Additionally, it also offers an advantage when the clamp is mounted vertically with the handle in the back position, stopping components from falling forwards as the handle is behind the component in the lock position.

Horizontal Handle Toggle Clamps

Horizontal handle toggle clamps are used in heavy duty horizontal clamping operations owing to their high clamping capacities and reliability. Raptor Supplies is a distributor of horizontal handle toggle clamps from brands like Destaco and Bessey. These heavy duty hold down clamps are designed for holding workpieces in place, with a lever handle that lays flat when the clamp is engaged. When the handle is in the horizontal position, these toggle clamps are in the locked position. These hold down clamps apply downward clamping force. Upon rotating the handle downward, the clamping arm pivots downward in the opposite direction to lock over the centre. These clamps feature a low profile to prevent obstruction.
Selected Destaco toggle clamps, including 213 Series clamps, feature an automatic pressure adjustment system that automatically adjusts the clamp's pressure. This allows the clamping of workpieces of varying sizes to adjust the pressure themselves. Most horizontal hold down toggle clamps are integrated with a linkage system that applies powerful clamping force with little effort to lock or unlock. Since this force is directed along the links, locking or unlocking the toggle does not require any force. The clamps are equipped with a spring in the jaw to hold it in place after a few adjustments.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are straight line action clamps installed?

Destaco straight line action clamps come with through holes on the flanged / straight base that allow quick and secure surface or blade mounting onto flat surfaces / workpieces using simple screwing. They can be removed and installed at a different location by simply unscrewing using a screwdriver.

How are toggle clamps measured?

Toggle clamps are available in multiple variants having different holding capacities. The capacity of a particular toggle clamp can be measured by calculating the distance between the clamping plate (at its highest position) & the workbench.

Does Destaco supply any water resistant clamp sensors?

Yes, Destaco also supplies inductive sensors designed in accordance with IP65 standards to ensure protection from powerful hydraulic jets, dust & heavy rain.

What does clamping force mean?

Clamping force is the amount of force actually applied to the workpiece by closing & locking the clamp. It is normally less than the stated holding capacity. The actual clamping force depends on various factors, including cylinder bore, cylinder area, spindle position (clamping arm length) and available air pressure. In most cases, the clamping force is approximately 2 to 3 times the force exerted by a pneumatic cylinder.

What is the difference between a vertical & horizontal toggle clamp?

The difference lies in the positioning of the clamp handle when it is in the locked position. A vertical clamp handle is positioned vertically (perpendicular to the base) when in the locked position, while in the case of a horizontal toggle clamp, it is positioned horizontally (parallel to the base).

What is the significance of the red colour of the handle of Destaco clamps?

There is no such significance of the colour of the clamp's handle, as it only represents a recognisable area. This helps operators in finding the handle quickly & easily.

What does a clamp's holding capacity signify?

The clamp's holding capacity or holding force represents the capability to hold down mechanical equipment or sheet metal while assembling automotive parts or during manufacturing processes.

How are horizontal toggle clamps used?

Horizontal toggle clamps use an over-centre locking action to hold a workpiece or fixture in the locked position.

What is the Toggle Lock Plus mechanism?

Selected Destaco horizontal clamp models feature the Toggle Lock Plus mechanism to prevent accidental opening of clamps.

Which grease is ideal for Destaco clamps for their rebuilding?

A coupling grease like Mobil XTC should be used when dealing with Destaco mechanical clamps, while the Magnalube G grease is great for use with pneumatic cylinder seals.
